Settling In

Well we made it down to the Lone Star State!
Aaaah...feels good to be back!

The drive down was pretty uneventful.
And I've been busy unpacking and beginning
the process of settling in.

I've mainly focused on getting the "core" of the house
put together, and can say now, 
one week later,
it's ALMOST done!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I put the 
sampler wall up the other night!

I need to get some better photos, but it came together
pretty well I think!  I was so glad when the wall was done.
Really gave me a "this is home" feeling!

I also got the mantle ready for summer.

Can you tell we get some natural sunlight in the main living area?
I'm going to have to figure out how to use that to my advantage
while taking photos!

I've been trying to keep the kitchen table
cleared off.

From the kitchen table, we can see this out the window.

I haven't really taken advantage of that yet, other than plunging my feet in
while taking breaks from the unpacking!

There are still a couple stray boxes in the kitchen.

 I have taken a LOT of boxes of STUFF to G'Willy's.
Needless to say, after this move and having to deal with all of our STUFF,
I will not be in any hurry to go thrifting for a long time!
On the other hand, if you live in the DFW area, there may be an influx
of funky decor items hitting your local G'Willy shelves soon!
ha!

Hoping to get back to the blog regularly soon!
Also hoping to lounge by the pool soon!

But for now,
Sam is certainly enjoying the pool!

 I hope you've had a pleasant week and
a wonderfully festive 4th of July!
And THANK YOU so much for the sampler love comments from the past week!

Until next time...

*Peace!

Your new home looks beautiful!!!!!! Wow! Love it! Nice kitchen, beautiful quilts (of course) (love that quilt ladder!!! I want one!), and that sampler wall! Wow! How did you get it so perfect? Beautiful! And a pool! What fun! Do you have to do the upkeep? Pools can be a pain to keep up, but boy, are they nice to have! Enjoy the new home! Love the pic of Sam in the pool!

Your new home looks very nice and I love your sampler wall! Hope you have time to relax soon! I live in west Texas, hope you enjoy being back!

Oh your home is looking wonderful! I love that ladder of quilts by the front door and your sampler wall is divine! I have plans for a similar arrangement in my new home. Hope the rest of the unpacking goes smoothly so you can sit and enjoy your new home.

Looks like a great house, and you've made it your own in record time. The sampler wall looks fantastic, and so does that pool. You need to get into that pool, BTW.

Monica said...

Just the mention of Texas makes me miss it. After three months of living in Florida I am still wishing I were still in Texas. Do a little shopping at Cabbage Rose for me would you? I miss popping in there every couple of weeks... : (

I love your quilt ladder and the perfectly lined up sampler wall. Any hints on how you accomplished that? Your swimming pup looks like the flat coat we used to have. It brought back bittersweet memories. We lost her a few years ago. I hope you get settled soon so you can enjoy your pool! Tnladybugs

Kim, your new home looks beautiful! And that pool! I suppose people in Texas need pols right?

Love that sampler wall - everything fit so well together like a mosaic. Now, how long did that take to figure out the placing? It's gorgeous.

Looks like Sam may be the happiest member of the family right now! Such a peaceful look on his face.

Your new home looks so comfy! THE wall is perfect, and the bookshelves are pretty great, too! Looks like lots of cabinet space. I know you're enjoying making the house a home! Be well.
